About Us

Most famously known as the home of Mount Panorama, Bathurst in NSW's Central West is home to Greyhound Racing, located at Kennerson Park on Upfold Street.

 

Bathurst Greyhounds joined the NSW Greyhound Breeders, Owners and Trainers Association in the early 2000's and continues with the strong support of volunteers.

 

The ground on which the Bathurst Club is now formed was donated to a group of mechanical hare racing enthusiasts by Mr Bill Kennerson in the early-mid 1900's. Descendants of the Kennerson family continue to support racing today, with the annual running of the Bill Kennerson Memorial.

 

Currently, the Bathurst track hosts 26 Category B and 26 Category C meetings, predominately on Monday afternoons and annually has a host of feature events including the Bathurst RSL Soldier Saddle, which is for greyhounds with 1-5wins.

 

Situated on the bank of the Macquarie River, the Bathurst track covers racing over 5 distances on a loam surface.

 

In 2012 the Club received the Club of the Year Award from GRNSW as well as receiving the Bathurst Business Award for Tourism in the same year.
